Can’t say I’m getting too worked up about this AV thing one way or another but based on what I’ve been hearing on air recently the people campaigning for a YES to introducing the new AV system cannot help but remind me of Sickboy in Irvine Welsh’s Trainspotting . . . when he’s losing an argument (and not taking heroin) he resorts to other tactics:

It’s aw a loaday shite anywey, Sick Boy meekly counters, using one of his classic tactics. If you can’t win the fine detail of the argument, then rubbish its context.

If first past the post isn’t getting your preferred candidate elected then get a better candidate . . . is it really the system’s fault?
